Manicuring/Nail Technology Career Education

An exciting career is right at your fingertips… and the fingertips of millions of others! Whether it is in a trendy salon, a tranquil spa or somewhere in between, opportunities for nail professionals continue to flourish. By enrolling in the Manicuring/Nail Technology program, you’ll learn both classic and creative techniques in nail design. The importance of having well-groomed nails and hands has always been a significant part of our culture. As a result, nail care is one of the fastest-growing services requested in salons.

Manicuring/Nail Technology is more than a manicure or pedicure. Nail technology is the art and science of professional nails. You’ll learn the anatomy, physiology and pathology of nails and skin; nail beauty techniques; and professional nail products and their uses.

Our Manicuring/Nail Technology program features:

Nail technology supplies, professional nail cosmetic products, basic manicures,
basic pedicures, nail shapes, safety and sanitation
Acrylic Nails
Sculptured nails; chemistry and safety for artificial nail enhancements; nail tip applications and overlays; nail wrap application and techniques

Anatomy and Physiology

The course length is divided into both technical classroom instruction in the science of nail technology and applied effort for practical operations. You will receive traditional classroom training; however, the majority of training is learned through real life experience with clients. This format provides an exceptional learning experience that prepares students with a solid background of practical hands-on training directly related to the nail industry.
